Data Nugget: Saving Grace

Grace periods give members a chance to renew without losing access to benefits and services.

According to a January survey from MemberZone, four-out-of-10 associations give a grace period of two to three months. Some offer none at all, and members at a few organizations get more than a year before they see their benefits withdrawn.

What is your organization’s grace period for nonrenewals?

1 Month: 13 percent

2-3 Months: 40 percent

6 Months: 15 percent

1 Year: 7 percent

More than a Year: 5 percent

None: 16 percent

Other 4 percent
